I have installed and configured a BlackBerry server and i am trying to clean up the logs.  I am getting the following in the system log.
"The application-specific persmission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM server application with CLSID {BC866CF2-5486-41F7-B46B-9AA49CF3EBB1} to the user NT Authority\Network service SID {S-1-5-20}. This security permission can be modiffed using the comppnent services administrative tool."

I am also getting the same message in reference to NT AUTHORITY\LOCAL SERVICE SID {S-1-5-19}

I have looked at all the information on Microsofts site with reference to modifing the permissions for the application....but not sure just which one to modify.

Thanks for the help...

what are the steps that you've tried so far?

From  http://forums.nvidia.com/lofiversion/index.php?t4126.html

The best thing you can do to improve system stability is remove the nvidia firewall (network access manager)

DCOM 10016 means that the NT Authority\Network service does not have "full control" permissions over a particular component, in our case it's {BC866CF2-5486-41F7-B46B-9AA49CF3EBB1}

hence, go to the registry and search for {BC866CF2-5486-41F7-B46B-9AA49CF3EBB1}
and right click on it and choose permissions.
Make sure that the "network service" account is listed there and has full control, else add it and give it full control.

go to add/remove programs and uninstall the application named NVIDIA Network Manager.

Another alternative:
1. go to start-->run-->dcomcnfg
2. expand console root-->component services-->computers-->my computer-->dcom config
3. right click on app_filter and select properties
4. Click on the security tab and select customize for "launch and activation permissions" hit EDIT to open the "launch permissions" window.
5. Click on add and then add the "network service" and "service" accont and grant it local launch and local activation permissions.
6. hit ok

I have given launch and activation permissions to the ones i thought could be causing the event without luck.

I am trying the last suggestion of adding service and network service with launch permissions right now.

This was the trick.  All is well in the system log.

Thank you.
